EVO LTE 2? Don't like not having removable storage

Well I am a sucker for most htc devices but if this doesn't come with an sd card slot then I will have to say no. Also, I wonder if 4.7" screen is a typo, I would think it would come with a 5" screen like the jbutterfly/droid dna. Anyway, I wish htc best of luck, they can't afford to make any further crappy business decisions but I know one thing, I won't get it right away, I will wait to see what the gs4 is all about before I make my decision.

Actually, I was hoping for more of a htc "note" type of device and this m7 doesn't seem to be that much of a revolutionary jump from the current evo. I mean htc had the flyer/evo view that came with the stylus and even though it was limited, some of the functionality was pretty cool, no reason why they couldn't have improve on that to at least try to compete with the note. Also, it was rumored that even the gs4 may have spen functionality, if that turns out to be true then that would put me one step closer to samsung.

It doesn't seem like that big of a jump and if it doesnt support at least 800 LTE than its an auto no buy.

I don't think that HTC wants to jump into phablet territory just yet. That part of the market has seen some growth, but I think that 4.7 to 5 inch screens are the sweet spot in that a man or a woman could easily pocket it even while wearing those dreaded skinny jeans.

Not sure how I feel about it. I'm a sucker for great hardware but every time I think I'm done with HTC they suck me back in. This phone sounds like a winner but you just don't know with HTC.

What I really want is HTC Hero of make the next Nexus.

I still have nightmares about my old HTC Hero...

Forgot about 800 LTE, holding onto my EVO LTE until at least 800 is supported.

I personally would prefer the 5" display. The DROID DNA looks amazing.

 

My biggest compliant with the EVO had been buggy LTE reception and just generally buggy software updates (like maps crashing).

 

As for microSD support, I wish they included it, but I get why they don't. Too many people buy really cheap microSD cards that die, then that requires a trip to the service center and an upset customer that they lost all of their photos. People end up blaming HTC for the fact that their microSD card failed, blah blah blah.

 

Just annoying that the rest of us get punished.

Might take a look at this. 32 gb of storage negates my need for a sd card.

Meh, this definitely sounds like a 'wait and see' device and not one I'd stay up late for it to become available on Sprints site. It's great HTC is talking about turning things around as of late, I want to make sure they're doing the walk and not just the talk. Especially if I'm going to be paying full price w/ no rebates.

I think the M7 phone should be a 5 in device like the droid dna. I went to a verizon store and played with the droid dna and it is a beauty. Im pretty sure the sgs4 is going to be 5 in and it would be nice tothe see a competing product.

 

Only problem with sprint is that they only come out with one flagship phone for htc and those that dont like the 4.7 - 5 in display category wont be happy.

I personally won't be buying any 5" devices. The EVO LTE and GS3 are plenty big enough. So if they do end up with a 5" device, they also better come out with a device in the 4.3 to 4.8" range.

this is the whole reason i went with iPhone 5. I didn't want anything crazy big. I do miss android though.

I hope so but Sprint needs to release more than 1 HTC device per year.

We used to have at least two HTC devices a year until 2012. I think the whole LTE roll out slowed that down. I'm sure we will see at least two or three HTC devices this year. especially if we see the first one in Q1.

Sony very rarely makes CDMA phones for the US. I think the last was Xperia Play for VZW.

Tis a shame too. Their lineup keeps getting better all the time. And they are developer friendly.

The only one I have tried was my brothers Play for about 5 minutes. I don't think it would be fair of me to judge Sony's phones based off of that one experience. That phone is pretty awful.

Never used a play... Cant imagine it would be that useful as anything but a gamepad first, phone second.

That's exactly what it was. I had one, and used it more to play than to call on.

I wear them too! And I have a Note 2. And it fits - with a case - in my pants just fine, I'll have you know!

 

Now, girl jeans are a whole different story. Pockets on those are just for show anyways. Most can't even accomidate an iPhone.

      I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
      It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.

      What are everyone's thought on the HTC U 12+?
    • By leozno1
      Figured the HTC U11 needs to have it's own thread as opposed to having that conversation in the HTC U Ultra thread.
       
      Pretty interesting article that has me excited about this phone. As the U11 seems to be leading Sprint's march towards Gigabit LTE.

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

    • It seems really big to me, but I have to admit I'm considering it.  The dual screen thing seems moderately interesting.  I'd be interested in trying it out.  EDIT:  But Best Buy has the G8X on sale right now at a very sensible price.  It's comparable in size to my G6, versus the V60 which, having looked at the dimensions, seems enormous by comparison.  My G6 is already at the very top end of what would fit in my hand.  If I got the V60, it'd be solely for the ability to use 5G, which I don't really need other than for tracking purposes--and right now, I think it's pretty safe to assume that a site with 600 MHz LTE on T-Mobile or a Massive MIMO antenna on Sprint is running 5G without having to prove it that way. - Trip
    • Official LG intro video:  
    • Any thoughts on the included dual-screen? Doesn't seem like something I'd use, would be nice to have an option where it's not included, maybe for a slightly lower price.  Battery size is nice! LG lagged a little behind on the battery for the G series for a while. https://www.cnet.com/news/hands-on-lg-v60-thinq-5g-with-8k-video-and-dual-screen/
